At SKORA we view Real Running as running how nature intended — efficient, effective and with ease. As the foot strikes the ground, contact is made in the middle of the foot, not at the heel. Running with a whole-foot gait results in less impact energy and force shock transmitted through the body than compared to the heel strike gait favored by conventional running shoes (built with large amounts of cushioning, support and a thicker heel).
Real Running is not something your body needs to learn, but rather be reminded of. As a child we all Run Real, it is only as we grow up and get used to conventional running shoes we forget how to run naturally.
Keep these tips in mind as you run and with enough practice your body will re-learn how to Run Real. Go slow, listen to your body and focus on the quality of your run, not the quantity of miles.

RHYTHMFind your Rhythm
The rhythm of your stride is an important part of maintaining good form.
While every body and gait is different, a good stride rhythm is around 180 footstrikes per minute.
A shorter stride length, encourages a whole-foot landing that allows your entire body to work as efficiently, and biomechanically correct as possible.
To help you Run Real, all our shoes are designed to mirror the foot’s natural shape, with
features and construction that ensure comfort and performance for all Real Runners. LEARN MORE AT SKORARUNNING.COM/DISCOVER/OUR-SHOES
